Sacraments above all else

Catholics took to the streets in towns and cities throughout Europe on Sunday, in protest against lockdown restrictions that have closed churches and forbidden people to gather together. Government actions in many countries have effectively banned Christians from receiving the Sacraments.

But Catholics defiantly took to the streets, holding impromptu confessions and Mass.

The message is clear: ‘You will have to kill and imprison us to stop us receiving the Sacraments.’

“The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church.”
